-out when it comes to the fiscal cliff. there are no major discussions going on right now about what to do now that talks between the president and the speaker have appeared to have stalled. they were both here yesterday for the funeral of daniel inu way and & we're told they didn't know what to do next. the president urged leaders to craft a sort of scaled down plan that simply extends the bush tax rates for the middle class and extends long-term unemployment benefits for another year. but jeff and rebecca, it's really unclear whether even a package like that could pass both houses of congress, and so the president is going to be cutting his vacation here short. he's heading back to washington midweek to work with congressional leaders. but at that point, as you know, there's going to be little time left. >> the pressure will be on and no do-overs for this. i want to turn to michael crapo and his dui. what kind of deals are being worked out? >> he's 61 years old. we're told on sunday morning he was driving outside alexandria. he ran a red light, was given a sobriety test and failed. he wa

of a band-aid for most americans before the fiscal cliff? >> i think absolutely. and i think also congress can buy a little more time if because, you know, what this deadline is congressional imposed so the band-aid over to january 2nd, the vote counting, 60 senate, 218 in the house is really -- this is the fine tuning that's going on to get these two big numbers in the deals and, thomas, i think then we have to think to get the patch, will it be bet tore have it slop over to the new congress in january 3rd or have the lame duck votes? i think even a patch may be a tough vote unless it's very, very broad so you have a few alternatives to go but at least if you're thinking small not big, there's a way out. >> all right. so reversing that, bob, thinking big not small, is the white house hoping to achieve some type of grand deal or is that just out of window at this point with so little time left? >> yes, thomas. i think any hope of a grand bargain this month is out the window. and the heavy lifting will be done, i agree with lynn, in 2013. with entitlement reform and tax reform. but number o

on the fiscal cliff. listen. >> the president's been a pathetic fiscal leader. he's produced three budgets and can't get one vote for any of his budgets. boehner will be tip o'neill. obama needs to be ronald reagan. i would vote for revenue, including tax rate hikes, even though i don't like them, to save the country from becoming greece. but i'm not going to set aside the $1.2 trillion in cuts. any hope of going over the fiscal cliff must start in the senate. >> gretchen: a lot of people were upset because members of congress just can't seem to get their act together or the president, depending on which side of the fence that you're on of the they were upset that they went on christmas vacations. the president went to hawaii and members of congress went home. both sides said we're going to come back to washington because we've got to solve the situation. i think what so many people are frustrated about is this is an ongoing situation. it's like every year we come to this point where we're talk being this cliff and this is what i think has angered so many voters and why congress has such a

republicans. and this is problematic obviously because in order to avoid the fiscal cliff, you would need to find some sort of deal that would make it through the senate and the house and that would need democratic and republican support. now, all eyes on the senate because they will reconvene on the 27th, thursday. and senate majority leader harry reid, it is up to him, really, to cobble together something that can get some of that support. right now the white house is still supporting a threshold of $250,000 back to their initial starting point for tax rates going up for those making more than that. but you can imagine, hala, that's going to be very hard for some republicans, maybe even some democrats to sign on to. >> right. and for just about a week ago, it was common to hear a deal will be hammered out. over the last several days we're hearing more and more that potentially this is a reality for americans in eight days' time. your sources in the administration, is there a real concern among some of the people you're speaking with that indeed this fiscal cliff will become a reality? >

the estimates about the impact of unemployment insurance if it is not extended in the fiscal cliff talks? guest: it is negative. if they do not get -- they spend less, and that is bad for the economy. we know what the congressional budget office said. the $30 billion cost of extending these programs would generate $33 billion. that is because this money trickles through the system. that money is spent on food, housing, heating, all of those basic necessities and give us a multiplier effect. host: this is from the national unemployment law program. nearly 1 million workers will run out of state unemployment benefits without access by the end of the first quarter of 2013. take us through those numbers a little bit, and specifically that 1 million more workers, how they would be impacted. guest: there are two fundamental programs. the important thing about them, this is really what counts in this, is that they provide those additional benefits at that six- month mark. if workers don't get those additional benefits, and they will be forced into other kinds of government programs, like welfare. that
